Bristol City v Swindon betting tips and predictions for tonight’s live TV football from League One including our tipsters’ betting preview.
We’re in for an exciting climax to the League One season at both ends of the table. Yeovil look to be slipping to successive relegations, but the other three spots are far from sewn up with many of the lower teams hitting runs of form. There are many teams that could still make the play offs, although their efforts could be in vain if Chesterfield continue their consistent run of form to sew up 6th place.
That leaves the top of the table where Bristol City have looked home and hosed for quite some time. The Robins (Bristol C) are only five points clear currently, following a couple of draws with Oldham and Barnsley, but they have the chance to extend the gap to eight over Preston with a victory here at Ashton Gate.
Swindon are one of the chasing pack, along with MK Dons, but they have slipped behind a little and may have to settle for a play-off place. They’ve lost at home 3-0 to the aforementioned Dons and Gillingham in their last five games, but have an excellent, versatile young squad packed full of promising talents for the future.
Massimo Luongo might not be at the County Ground next season whilst several loanees such as Harry Toffolo, John Swift and Jack Stephens will all be returning to their clubs at the end of the season. Louis Thompson has already been signed by Norwich and will be joining the Canaries in the summer and it is a huge uphill task for Mark Cooper to rebuild his squad if they fail to achieve promotion.
They’ve been playing some excellent football and they will give the Bristol City defenders plenty to think about, but I don’t think they have enough here. Swindon have picked up some decent victories in their last few games including an impressive win against Doncaster and against out of sorts Port Vale and Notts County, but I think this is a step up in terms of opposition.
The price on Bristol City isn’t too short as they are playing decent opposition, so I would take the 6/5 about them to win with Bet365
Our first football betting tip for today is Bristol City to win at odds of 6/5 with Bet365.
There’s bound to be goals in Bristol City v Swindon tonight. Both sides have plenty of firepower and it should be an excellent spectacle for the casual Sky Sports viewer and hopefully a good advert for League One football. 25 of Swindon’s 39 games this season in the league have finished with over 2.5 goals including their last two games, which have had three goals each. Bristol City also have a high percentage of games where the overs is hit. 24 of their 39 games have had three or more goals and unless these teams find a way of cancelling each other out, there should be goals at Ashton Gate.
Our second Bristol City v Swindon prediction is for over 2.5 goals to be scored at 10/11 with Coral.
Nine goals in 40 appearances isn’t bad for a central defender. That’s the record that Aden Flint, the Bristol City centre half possesses and the big stopper used to play for Swindon so there may be added impetus to find the net during the 90 minutes. He comes up for corners and City seem to score a large number of goals from set pieces. He notched at Wembley a few weeks ago and I fancy him to make his tally double figures against his former employers.
